Like a garden

It's hard to see that things will work out when you are in the dark night of the soul, when it's hard to see the sun's rays breaking through. The clouds seem thick and dense and almost to enshroud us until we learn to really see.

Then we find they are but a mist that can be blown away by the breeze or lifted by the warmth of the sun. So too can we be lifted up when we allow God's light to shine through and allow us to look with greater clarity and less fear.

Sometimes what we experience are but life's little lessons to strengthen us and to prepare us, like a flower bed in the garden, for the beauty that will come into our life and grow and prosper. That will blossom profusely and bring joy not only to us but all who behold the radiance of God's work fulfilled.
